Review: Without delving too much into my personal life I can say that I understand what it is to have scars, I don’t wear my scars on the outside so much as I do on the inside. At a young age, I had severe health issues and it wasn’t until I was thirteen that I was on my way until better health.
This being said, the story behind the creation of this book is touching. Although I felt like there should have been more of the personal story fused in with the medical help. I thought that perhaps there would be more introduction to the author’s struggles from a young age to the then surgery and recovery after which would have led to the knowledge of scars and how to heal them properly, etc.
However, this is a very knowledgeable book about how to take care of wounds and how to reduce scars or their appearances.
